Book Review: Vengeance by A.J. Scudiere

How would you react if the mafia took out your entire family? Cynthia Beller came up fighting. Years of training have made her the mafia's worst nightmare, but there is another who is out for Vengeance too and an FBI agent close on her heals.

Find out what is "right" and what is "justified" in AJ Scudiere's VENGEANCE.

Two characters, a man and a woman of differing ages, have each had experiences that justify hating the mafia.  They set out separately (they didn't know each other) to wipe out as many members of the mafia as possible.

The book is hard to get into at the start.  It took me until after page 100 to really get hooked.  There was just too much background at the beginning, it bogged the pacing down.  Also, the story wouldn't have been harmed any if the number of kills had been reduced, making a shorter and tighter book.

Vengeance was very well-written and well-edited.  It was refreshing in that it reflects the government security agencies as dedicated people that are hard working and honest.  For the squeamish, I have to add a warning.  This book is quite vivid in its descriptions of the actions taken in each kill.  It's very bloody and violent.  The ending was very unexpected and enjoyable.

Ralph gives this book 4 Bookworms.
